I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 12 and prescribed adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and it changed my life for the better. Would I be able to get tx at age 29? I haven't

Maybe: Prescribing any drug needs to be backed up by documented need, physical exam and any studies the physician feels appropriate. Adderall is closely monitored by the feds and state. Adults who had ADHD as a kid are less likely to be labeled drug seekers as adults, but expect any physician, neurologist or psychiatrist who agrees to treat you to spend some time justifying the need before agreeing to.

I sleep all night, but when I get up in the morning, I feel so exhausted that I am back in bed by 1 pm. I feel so tired that I can't keep my eyes open. My doctor prescribed Adderall several months ago, but there has been no change. What should I do?

I sleep all night, but when I get up in the morning, I feel so exhausted that I am back in bed by 1 pm. I feel so tired that I can't keep my eyes open. My doctor prescribed Adderall several months ago, but there has been no change. What should I do?

Exhausted: First recommendation - have a formal evaluation about your sleep. You might be exhausted because it is not restorative. This can also be a manifestation of depression and a stimulant is not always helpful in that setting. If evaluation leads to repeated recommendation for stimulant, then evaluate if dose and type best for you. Read more

Can I tell me how I can get work done on non-adderall days?

Can I tell me how I can get work done on non-adderall days?

Non Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) Days: I assume you are calling those days you are not taking adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). I don't see why that happens. All medications for add/adhd should be administered every day including weekends and holidays, to prevent falls in the level of the medicine during those days off. If you work with a psychiatrist, you must have 30 days supply of your medications, and also practice behavioral exercises to reduce symptoms. Read more

In your system or on: Your person? If you have stolen or illegally obtained xanax (alprazolam) ; Adderall - that is a crime. If it is picked up on a urine drug screen ; is not prescribed for you there may be a cascade of negative effects (are you on parole? In a drug treatment program? Applying for a job? Have a job you may lose?), if you use good judgment then you will not face this type of dilemma. Read more

Wanted to know where can I get a drug to could you help me concentrate like Adderall or ritalin (methylphenidate)?

Wanted to know where can I get a drug to could you help me concentrate like Adderall or ritalin (methylphenidate)?

Doctor: You just don't "get these drugs" so you can concentrate better. These are powerful drugs that are indicated after a very thorough medical and psychological work-up that shows significant impairment in life due to the symptoms. Otherwise, good nights sleep and proper diet will work better to help you concentrate better on a day-to-day basis. Read more

Ran out of adderall not gettin new script till tm, have left over vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) from when I used to be prescribed before I switched, ok for me to take 1 day?

Depends on dose: Adderall is a mixture of amphetamine salts while Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is just one component of Addersll. The general equivalence is 30 mg of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) = 10 mg of Addersll, 50 mg Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) = 20 mg Addersll & 70 mg Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine)= 30 mg of Adderall. If you were taking a dose of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) equivalent to your Adderall you should be safe in the short run. Read more

Took 15mg of Adderall and supplemented it with 25 mg of ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate). Will I get the same effect?

Took 15mg of Adderall and supplemented it with 25 mg of ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate). Will I get the same effect?

No, and you shouldn't: Be playing doctor (or pharmacist). Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) has been removed from the American market for some time because it has a great potential to increase pulse and blood pressure, and was associated with a number of severe adverse events in patients taking them, as was phenylpropylamine. What you are doing is abuse, and is not helping your ADHD. Discuss with your psychiatrist if you are having problems. Read more
